Cengage Learning, a leading global provider of innovative teaching, learning and research solutions, today announced a landmark mathematical publication: Brief Applied Calculus by renowned author and mathematician James Stewart and Daniel Clegg (Hardcover ISBN-13: 9780534423827, $137.95 list). Published under the Brooks/Cole imprint from Cengage Learning, James Stewart’s calculus and precalculus textbooks have educated over 5 million students worldwide.

“There is a wide range of mathematical abilities with applied calculus students. I wanted to provide enough careful, patient explanation in the examples and exposition,” said author James Stewart.

Brief Applied Calculus takes an intuitive, less formal approach to calculus without sacrificing mathematical integrity. Featuring a wide range of applications designed to motivate students with a variety of interests, clear examples detailing important mathematical processes, and a vast collection of exercises appropriate for students with disparate skill sets, this first edition is ideal for students who need to learn how to apply calculus concepts rather than replicate the formal proofs behind the techniques. Early coverage of exponential and logarithmic functions allows for the inclusion of many interesting applications throughout the text.

Reviewer comments of the book have been positive:
“The thing I like the most is the way the homework problem sets are organized. The prepare yourself and challenge yourself exercises definitely caught my attention,” said Solomon Willis, Cleveland Community College. “I think this would be great for students. I also like the inclusion of the projects and I like the way the book explains difficult concepts.”

“A textbook that simplifies applied calculus to a point where any student with the prerequisites can understand the concepts and be successful in the course,” said Salvatore Sciandra, Niagara County Community College.

This accesible and modern textbook is available with a range of supplements including Tools for Enriching Calculus, online, interactive simulations that allow applied calculus students to work with animations to deepen their understanding of key concepts. These simulations help students visualize the concepts they are learning and engage students in the lessons.

Exclusively from Cengage Learning, Enhanced WebAssign® offers an extensive online homework program for Stewart/Clegg’s Brief Applied Calculus to encourage the practice that is critical for concept mastery. The meticulously crafted pedagogy and exercises in the Stewart/Clegg textbook become even more effective in Enhanced WebAssign, supplemented by multimedia tutorial support and immediate feedback as students complete their assignments. Enhanced WebAssign for Stewart/Clegg includes opportunities for students to review prerequisite skills and content throughout.

Instructors and students alike will find this textbook to be an approachable, contemporary and reliable learning resource for the applied calculus course.
